AFCON 2022 Quarterfinals: Matches, schedule, times, TV for Africa Cup of Nations knockout round

How to watch AFCON 2022: Dates, TV channels, streams, expert betting tips & picks

The quarterfinal slots are slowly being filled at the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations with four teams already confirmed to be moving on to the final eight.

The single-elimination Round of 16 matches have already provided an upset with Tunisia knocking off Nigeria. The North African side will face Burkina Faso in the quarters, while The Gambia and host Cameroon moved on to the quarterfinals after one-goal victories. The rest of the field will be determined on Tuesday and Wednesday.

With defending champion Algeria eliminated in the group stage, there will be a new champion. Ghana was also shockingly eliminated from contention in the group stage.

At least one more heavyweight will miss out on the quarterfinal stage: Ivory Coast and Egypt meet up in a Round of 16 clash that will send one of those storied nations crashing out. Ivory Coast has looked one of the best teams in the tournament thus far, and the West African nation will be extra motivated to prove its worth given the early elimination from African qualifying for the 2022 World Cup.

In addition, Cape Verde will look to continue its Cinderella run, as the tiny nation surprisingly reached the knockout round. Comoros was another underdog story, but it fell to in-form host Cameroon in the Round of 16. Comoros had no available goalkeepers due to a COVID-19 outbreak and it also was forced to play with 10 men due to an early red card as it lost 2-1.
